Posted: Updated:

2 Tweets, 162,000 Followers in Two Days. It was the tweet heard round the sports world. And it turns out it was all a stunt.

Jackson, who piloted the Chicago Bulls and the Los Angeles Lakers to multiple NBA titles, joined the social networking site Wednesday.

His fiancée, Jeanie Buss tweeted out the announcement. "Please welcome Phil Jackson to twitter @PhilJackson11," Buss tweeted Wednesday afternoon.

Turns Out the first Tweet was actually an ad for AOL. Good work Phil!
